Exploration of Form

Blair Huang & Daniel Yu, Second Year Computational Design
Andrew Butler, Course Convenor

The 2nd  year Computational Design Building Data course focuses on performance-driven and evidence-driven computational design practices to simultaneously meet sustainability, structural, and economic goals. Working with parametric design tools and a variety of data-sets students develop optimisation and simulation processes to support interoperability and design decision-making. The model shown demonstrates a performative façade generated for a tall building using a solar analysis and optimisation workflow in Grasshopper’s parametric scripting environment.
